I started my canvas by applying a thin coat of gesso so I could water wash the colors. I used a lot of water and painted blue on the top and green on the bottom.
Next, I wanted clouds. I cut one out from DP-it was the wrong color. I grabbed my handy sponge.
I started sponging blue ink around the cut out & layered -staggered & repeated.
I used a grass stamp & stamped some on the bottom of the canvas.
I had bought some punch out sheets from my Stampin Up Demonstrator last year. She didn't remember the name. I punched everything out & started layering them on my table to get an idea of how I wanted to lay them on the canvas.
I distressed the carriage and horses so they'd show up better. Aren't the trees cute? They were punched out too.
All the pieces were applied to the canvas with mod podge.
At the very end I sprinkled glitter onto the mod podge.
I love how it turned out. My 8 month old Granddaughter is going to love it when she gets a little older.
Fall is in the air! The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design! The did a fabulous job! They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones. Dry-brushing technique. The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.
We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!
I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.
I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up. Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
